On the day I have been there the reservoir was rather filled up and about one quarter of the settlement was under water. Apparently in dry times the whole settlement shows plus a monastic homestead which might have been linked to the old abbey in Buckfast.
The site has been excavated during the construction of the dam in the fifties.
